Hi @bg26892 - thanks for reporting. Do you have crash reports enabled?

Thanks for your response! I’m not sure and I can’t go into the application to enable them…unless there is a way to do so without being in the application. Thanks!

can you provide any update on this?

Hi @bg26892 - really sorry for the delay! Have you tried deleting browser and re-installing?

i don’t want to entirely delete it - as I will lose my data. unable to backup things up either.

i was told to back up my data here but this folder does not exist. Library/Application Support/Brave Software/Brave-Browser

I’m having exactly the same problem. Is there a solution?

can anyone help us please? Thanks!

For some unknown reason, Brave suddenly stopped crashing on launch and is now working as expected for me. I wish I could tell you what I did to correct the problem. The only thing I can think of is that I may have rebooted the computer at some point, but I can’t be sure that the Brave issue went away immediately after the reboot.
